Thelma Golden in conversation


Friday May 15, 4pm

Thelma Golden (Director and Chief Curator of The Studio Museum in Harlem, New York) and Dr. Arnold Lehman (Director, Brooklyn Museum, New York) will discuss the question: Whom do museums serve?

This conversation, between two highly respected curators with long and esteemed careers at New York institutions, will focus on the question of museums, the public, and whom museums really serve. Both directors have worked for decades to turn their respective local museums into international institutions, and both have expanded the audiences for contemporary art. They’ll talk about their involvement in seminal shows like ‘Black Male’ and ‘Sensation’, censorship scandals, and the future landscape of New York museums.
